Massimiliano Martinelli is an Italian cellist known for his flawless technique, strong versatility and soulstirring expressivity.
He made his debut as soloist in 2007, playing Krzysztof Penderecki’s “Concerto Grosso per tre violoncelli e orchestra” alongside the Orchestra Giovanile Italiana (OGI). Since then, he has performed several concerts around Europe and Asia, collaborating with worldfamous orchestra such as Riccardo Muti’s Luigi Cherubini Orchestra, Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma (Italy), Jyväskylä Sinfonia (Finland), Sinfonieorchester Basel (Switzerland), Gyeongnam Symphony Orchestra (Korea) and Hokkaido Philarmonic Youth Orchestra (Japan), and has appeared as Guest First Cello at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
At the age of 23, he was appointed Principal Cello in Riccardo Muti’s Luigi Cherubini Orchestra, a role he retained for three years, performing throughout Switzerland, Malta, Russia, Spain and Italy. He went on to audition for the Teatro Comunale di Bologna, where he played First Cello until 2008. In 2010 he was handpicked by Maestro Daniele Gatti as First Solo Cellist of Zurich’s Opera House, starting a collaboration that lasted six years.
Also a wellknown cello professor, Mr. Martinelli teaches at a number of Italian universities as well as at Zurich’s Konservatorium, and hosts various summer courses. He’s taught as Guest Professor at the Toscanini Music University of Ribera, Italy, and in 2016 received an invitation by the University of Hokkaido to give cello and chamber music masterclasses alongside his wife, cellist Fulvia Mancini.
Born in Apulia, Mr. Martinelli studied at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia (Rome) with Francesco Strano, before relocating to Basel to further his education with Ivan Monighetti. He has won thirtythree national and international competitions, most notably the First Prize in the International Cello Competition of Liezen (Austria), the First Prize in the Arturo Bonucci Cello Competition, and the Fifth Prize in the Gyeongnam International Music Competition (Korea).
Together with his wife Fulvia Mancini, he is the Artistic Director of the Festival Regina Musica al Castello near Rome. The couple also forms the duo Mr & Mrs Cello, and in early 2019 won a Special Award at the 1st Vienna International Music Competition after the release of their stunning debut EPs, ‘Crossover One’ and ‘Crossover Two’.
